Deep-Country Quality, United Kingdom, February 1951

'Dressed for the rain and the mud, so not resenting - actually welcoming them, she leans on the traditional five-barred gate that opens into a million English fields. It takes quality to meet and defeat our island weather. Her weatherproof, famous pioneer of them all, possesses it abundantly. Burberry's loose raglan raincoat in mole wool gaberdine; matching rain hat. Lamb-lined overboots: Lilley and Skinner. Gloves, crocheted string backs, leather palms: Fausta.'

British Vogue, February 1951, page 54.
